Ellen:

It was nice to see you last week.  I saw your email spreading the word about Met Market's support of Picture Perfect QA.  Their Uptown store is supporting FOLKpark with the same Nickles of Neighborhood program.  It's great to have such strong local support.  The same deal - every time you come into the Uptown store with a reusable bag they contribute 5 cents to the park.  They were also wonderful about letting us set up tables to sell Happy Hour on the Hill tickets.  Best,

Fwd: Change Is In The Air At The Queen Anne Farmers Market!



QANRGlogoWEBhorz

 

April 6, 2011

 

STATEMENT

 

Queen Anne Neighbors for Responsible Growth

RE: Queen Anne Farmers Market

 

After a very successful year in 2010, the Queen Anne Farmers Market (QAFM) is looking forward to its 2011 Grand Opening on Thursday, June 2.  After four years of operation, a new vision of the market calls for putting in place measures that will insure long-term sustainability of this popular community resource.

 

Much of the success of the market so far has been due to the passion, devotion, and commitment of Julie Whitehorn. But with success come changes, which means for the coming 2011 season, Queen Anne Neighbors for Responsible Growth (QANRG), the fiscal sponsor of the market, will assume overall responsibility for the market, and will be and implementing a new management team.  Julie may serve as a consultant, utilizing her knowledge and experiences for those market activities in which she has been so successful in past seasons. 

 

As part of this new vision, a new QAFM Advisory Board is being formed, consisting of a broad representation from the Queen Anne community.  The Board's main function will be to develop, recommend, and implement plans for the long-term health of the market, including financial self-sufficiency and adapting to the needs and desires of the community as necessary.    

 

The Seattle Office of Economic Development (OED) has oversight responsibility for the farmers markets in the city and has provided invaluable leadership and support for these changes for the QAFM.  Without OED's guidance and support, this would not have been possible.

Fwd: Mercer Corridor Project: Weekend Closures of I-5 on- and off-ramps at Mercer St. Coming this Spring

Dear Queen Anne Community Council,

As part of Phase 1 of the Mercer Corridor Project, The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) anticipates the need for approximately twenty full weekend closures of the I-5 on- and off-ramps at Mercer Street over the course of the project, which is scheduled for completion in 2013. The first closures are tentatively scheduled to begin this spring.

Weekend closures will occur from Friday at 11:00 p.m. to Monday at 5:00 a.m. Specific dates will be announced as soon as they are available. Closures are being closely coordinated with other construction and special events in the area, including activities at the Seattle Center.

Ramp closures are required for utility installations on Fairview Ave. N at Mercer St., including water, sewer, electrical and communications line installations, as well as to align the existing on- and off-ramps with future westbound lanes of Mercer St. Fairview Ave. N will also be closed between Mercer St. and Valley St. during ramp closures.

 

Detour routes will be clearly marked and will direct travelers to the I-5 on- and off-ramps at Stewart St. and Olive Way. Travelers are encouraged to carpool and use alternate modes of transportation. Transit information can be found at: 

·         King County Metro at www.kingcounty.gov/metro

·         Sound Transit at www.soundtransit.org

·         Community Transit at www.commtrans.org

If your organization would like a briefing about the upcoming closures, or if you'd like us to provide you with a detour map specific to your location, please let us know. 

Please contact the Mercer Corridor Project if you have any questions or concerns about this work. You can reach our 24-hour construction hotline at (206)419-5818, or email us at mercerinfo@seattle.gov.

Sincerely,

Angela Brady

You may have seen the Smith Cove March 3rd public meeting advertisement in this week's Magnolia/Queen Anne News, but I thought I'd send the meeting postcard your way.

Fwd: Town Hall questions


Magnolia/QA District Council members,

I have an update on the Mayor's Town Hall - this one will be focused on Magnolia/Interbay.  The Mayor wants to do a Queen Anne town hall later in the year.  As I mentioned on Monday night at the district council meeting, I need to prepare briefing documents with a list of questions  for the Mayor.  Please send me your questions by the end of the day tomorrow, Friday 2/18/11.

 

Thank you!
